Doug E. Doug is from Brooklyn  *clapping*. He was one of the Jamaican bob-sleders in "Cool Runnings", a soldier in "Operation Dumbo Drop", he was cast in a couple Spike Lee jointz, and was a regular on the second incarnation of the Cosby show along with Madeline Kahn.

  He was also a good friend of mine.

Marx Brothers had a house close by to me here in Queens on that good border of Brooklyn! So many historic notes and people, but people known in movies... well, good ole Rodney Dangerfield had his apartment right above 'Austin Ale House'.

Babe Ruth and Mae West frequently came her to the 'Triangle Hofbrau' and mad etheir home here easily.

Laurel and Hardey had the great love for Brooklyn, as so many films were done in the Brooklyn movie lots back then! On and on.
